Property Description

This stately home that's perched high on a hill overlooking Huntington. First called The Hemlocks and later the Francis Home! Now it could be home to your family! Since it was built in 1924, the house has been home to a succession of Huntington families, beginning with the man who built it, J.D. Francis, the president of Island Creek Coal and one of the richest men in Huntington. “This house, from the beginning, was a home. Mr. Francis could have built a mansion, but he built a home for his family,” Your Family will make use of every one of the house’s 22 rooms, often repurposing them to accommodate modern needs. The house also has nine bathrooms and nine fireplaces. Every member of the family will have a spot they’ve made their own. The chauffeur’s cottage is now an art studio. The landing of the home’s graceful, three-story staircase provides the best reading spot in the house. In 2011 the owners hired architect Brian Kent Jones of Columbus and contractors Earl and Jerry Adkins to design and construct a three-story addition, providing modern amenities while being careful to preserve the original portion of the house. The addition includes a man cave and home theater on the lower level that opens out to the pool area. A new kitchen, family room, butler’s pantry, and eating area are on the main level, which also features a wrap-around porch that overlooks the city. A master suite, sun porch, and bathroom are on the second floor. The home’s kitchen, designed by Chandler’s, replaced the much smaller original kitchen left from the days when hired help did the cooking. The new kitchen opens up into the family room so your family and friends can gather while preparing dinner. There's more to "The Hemlocks" than can be described, you must tour this lovely property to experience your next home! Enjoy:https://youtu.be/KSTvKd5lsMk
